Lot # 2 (Sale Order: 2 of 39)      

Artist:Greg Holdren Patrons: Bill & Lucille Sapp

The butterfly here represents an idea becoming a reality. The idea occurs and is brought into being. And the completion is offered to the world.

Have you ever seen a butterfly in the wind? They get tossed in all directions, but, whether by providence or their own control, never seemed to get smashed into anything (except cars). This reminds me of how a good idea goes through the gamut of critic but holds its own to end up as a real thing (the cars are the heavy handed critics but holds it's own to end up as a real thing (the cars are the heavy handed critics meeting an oversensitive creator).

Climbing Rose - High Aspirations

Climbing Rose - High Aspirations

Lot # 5 (Sale Order: 5 of 39)      

Artist: Darlene Jansen Patron: The Peed Family

My inspiration for Climbing Rose - High Aspirations reflects the encouragement Campus Life gives to teenagers for climbing to their highest achievements. The rose in full bloom reflects the growth in fulfillment of their accomplishments and the buds represent the dreams of their aspirations.  Colors depicted within the serving  hands ~ the blue represents ?sky is the limit,? the yellow represents warm mentoring,? and the green represents  ?help in building a solid foundation for life.? Included in the greenery is the acknowledgment of Celebrating 50 years!

Beauty From Ashes:Ellie and Kylene

Beauty From Ashes:Ellie and Kylene

Lot # 7 (Sale Order: 7 of 39)      

Artist: Alison Rash Patrons: Deb & Tom Cabela and White Law Office, P.C., L.L.O.

Beauty from Ashes is a series I've been working on for a while. I've been thinking a lot about how we all have ashes. We all have pain. And big or small, there is beauty in us helping each other through the pain. When we experience trauma or loss, there is often something beautiful that is revealed. Maybe something we wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

Each painting has a specific person's name at the end. Someone who has touched me personally. Someone who has overcome loss.

When I started these paintings, I found that they demanded more of me than the previous series. They asked me to DO something with them after removing the vinyl. It is kind of like they've been asking, So now what are you going to do with this? With this story?" They remind me of a pile of rainbows. A pile of promises. Finding beauty in ashes.

Beauty from Ashes: Ellie and Kylene is inspired by two of my heroes. Both cancer survivors. Both remarkable women. Ellie's bravery and courage after receiving a devastating cancer diagnosis and prognosis and her persistence and determination to continue to fight seven years later (after initially being told she had ten to twelve months) can be an inspiration to each of us. Never give up. Take things one step at a time. Keep going. Kylene's generosity and belief gave me a chance in my own cancer battle that otherwise would not have been possible. Giving to another without a second thought. Something for each of us to emulate. Beauty. So much beauty from ashes.

A Precious Bird

A Precious Bird

Lot # 10 (Sale Order: 10 of 39)      

Artist: Mark Kuzara Patrons: Julie Kloke & Dan Semrad

A white dove can be symbolic of peace, love and new beginnings. The release of white doves during rituals, ceremonies and celebrations has been a tradition for centuries and transcends all cultures and traditions.

The release of a white dove uplifts the eyes and can have religious connotations, but also commonly symbolizes hope, peace, dedication and love among other meanings.

Viewers of this sculpture must determine for themselves what it means as their experiences, religious or cultural backgrounds will influence their interpretation.

You Raise Me Up

You Raise Me Up

Lot # 11 (Sale Order: 11 of 39)      

Artist:Roberta Barnes Patron:LI-COR Biosciences

Hands are the part of the human body capable of expressing care and compassion towards one another.  The act of giving of ourselves to ?Raise Up? another individual becomes an action of passing on kindness, caring, and compassion. My design depicts the concepts of ?Raising Up? one another and universal kindness.  It also conveys the ?glow? we feel as we give to another.

The surface of the hands would be painted black.  I would then build layers of colors that would become more and more luminous, representing the positive or the light we experience when we have given and when another individual has been supported.

I want to depict two images toward the base of the sculpture that represent the state of Nebraska;  first, the use of corn stalks painted at the base symbolizing the growth in Nebraska.  Secondly, I will insert the image of the State Capitol with the sower, symbolic of the idea, ?we reap what we sow.?

My Child, I Give You the Moon

My Child, I Give You the Moon

Lot # 12 (Sale Order: 12 of 39)      

Artist:Ian Anthony Laing Patron:Warren Distribution

?Goodnight Moon? was one of my favorite books to read to my daughters when they were little.  I believe every Dad wants to give their children the moon.  This opportunity is providing me a way to do that.  My legacy!

Glowing stars on the hands will be charged by the sun or interior lighting that will glow at night or when street lights are turned off.  The color of the hands is to be determined after I see the piece coming together, but I?m leaning towards a satin black right now.

My excitement is with the moon.  This will be a 4 or 5 foot in diameter injection molded sphere.  It will be hand painted with acrylic paint to reproduce the texture of the moon?s surface.  Part of the coating will be ?glow in the dark? paint.  My vision is that one side of the moon will be a full moon;  its reverse side will look like an eclipse, and the views from each side will be a waxing or waning moon.  A trip around the sculpture will be much like the moon traveling around the Earth, allowing you to see all phases of the moon.

Haymarket Warmth

Haymarket Warmth

Lot # 13 (Sale Order: 13 of 39)      

Artist: Brian Arp Patrons: Katie & Scott Spohn and Tuttle Inc.

The nightlife of the Haymarket is dying down, but the warmth of the light is still much alive.  As a couple gets a chance to enjoy the warmth of the light under a full moon, the protection of their umbrella helps to shelter them from the cold night.  The umbrella might bring them closer, and give them a feeling of unity as they head to their destination. The back is a rendition of the same night at Pioneers Park, embellished with lighting to warm the trees on this cold night.  The two scenes parallel the rural and urban qualities Lincoln has to offer.

The Light of Hope

The Light of Hope

Lot # 17 (Sale Order: 17 of 39)      

Artist: Lila Rose Vamosi Patron: The Landing at Williamsburg Village

This piece is inspired by the long dark path we all find ourselves treading from time to time, where we feel lost and discouraged, uncertain we will ever find our way out.  But through the darkness shines a bright light of hope just beyond the horizon, there to show us the way to a brighter tomorrow.

You Did For Me

You Did For Me

Lot # 18 (Sale Order: 18 of 39)      

Artist: Lindsay Reger & Sara Walters

The inspiration for this concept came first of all from the Bible verse Matthew 25:40, which says: ?The King will reply, ?Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.?" This Bible verse, along with the chapter that surrounds it, is about serving others. By serving those with the least, the poorest, the friendless, we serve God and show our love for Him and our neighbors.

Additionally, inspiration arose from watching friends and family selflessly serve children in the community. This service occurs in a variety of settings, each vital to a child?s development and growth in its own unique way. A community of people (such as educators in schools, daycare providers, medical staff at pediatric health institutions, foster care parents, after school club volunteers, and youth sports coaches to name a few) each making their own unique investment in a child can truly make a difference in the path that child takes toward a successful and fulfilling future.

In this sculpture, the children depicted at the bottom of the ladder represent children who might need a little extra help to get through this big and sometimes scary world. The children?s drawings on the opposite hand depict the utopian life the kids might imagine they will one day achieve; perhaps even something seemingly as simple as a family and a home. Other drawings depicted include a child?s favorite activity, best friends, and dreams for the future. Ultimately, serving children is a way to serve both the present and the future simultaneously. Who children become when they grow up can be shaped by how we serve them now.

Catch a Falling Star

Catch a Falling Star

Lot # 19 (Sale Order: 19 of 39)      

Artists: Jessica Olsen Patrons: Chris & Tom Schleich

I am fascinated with light and using it in unconventional ways.  When I learned about the Serving Hands design competition my mind was flooded with interesting ways I could incorporate light as a part of the Hands sculpture.

Design Process:  I will paint the sculpture with white gold in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Campus Life which has been positively impacting teens in and around the Lincoln area.  A 20? wire sphere, with fiberoptic lights throughout, will be mounted within the Hands.  The sphere is symbolic of the support and many opportunities Campus Life offers teens to see the light and remain positive, no matter how bleak life seems to be at the moment.

Patchwork Fields

Patchwork Fields

Lot # 21 (Sale Order: 21 of 39)      

Artist: Patrick Gauthier Patron: Legacy Retirement Communities

Grant Wood was an American Regionalism artist and painter who is best known for his painting, American Gothic.  His rolling hills and roads winding through his countryside paintings remind me of the American artists I like, such as Grandma Moses and Charles Wysocki.  Billowing clouds, church spires, patchwork fields and trees fill their landscape paintings.  A similar regional colorful landscape painting of a Midwest landscape will remind us of the beautiful area of our country in which we live in.

Garden of Glory

Garden of Glory

Lot # 22 (Sale Order: 22 of 39)      

Artist: Paula Yoachim Patron: Kathleen Svoboda: In Honor of My Mother and Father

The inspiration of this design comes from the beauty of nature. I selected flowers from my own garden and would include birds & more varieties of butterflies on a larger scale. The leaves and vines from the flowers would intertwine and create a unifying path of movement in the final design. Everyone loves flowers, birds, and butterflies. I think this could be a fun design that would appeal to all ages of viewers who appreciate the beauty of nature.

Oliver's Bowl

Oliver's Bowl

Lot # 23 (Sale Order: 23 of 39)      

Artist:Ian Anthony Laing Patron: Warren Distribution

One of my all-time favorite movies is Oliver Twist.  We are faced with child hunger in our country and this image of Oliver?s bowl keeps coming back to me.  In the scene in the movie when Oliver makes his way for more soup, he stands facing those in charge, takes a deep breath and says, ?Please sir, I want more,? but he is chased away.

There are people nowadays being chased away too, much like Oliver.  When I saw the bowl on the old-looking hands, it really changed what I was thinking in regard to this piece.  I was forced to look at it differently.  This design is created for all people who have hunger--for the children, the homeless and seniors.

The hands will be painted with a flesh-colored acrylic paint.  My vision is to accentuate the features in the hands to have them look like a pair of weathered hands.  The wrists will have sleeves to keep the dignity of the piece.  This is a way to show that hunger crosses over all people.  The bowl will be made of metal and painted to look like a ceramic bowl.  There is no significance to the color of the bowl.  It will have a custom metal spoon and the bowl will be empty.  This is the sadness of the piece! I look forward to creating this design so it can become a visual way to continue the discussion about hunger in our city, nation and the world.

Serving Bones

Serving Bones

Lot # 25 (Sale Order: 25 of 39)      

Artist:Miranda Knutson Patron: Jeanne Garvin

The hand has been thought of as a power conduit - transforming unseen energy into a worldly form. The term manifestation is formed around the Latin word manus, meaning hand. The philosophical meaning for bones has been translated as the last earthly traces of the dead, seemingly lasting forever (the indestructible life), while also representing mortality and the transitory. In this way, flesh and bone together can portray the earth. The inspiration to create the image Serving Bones was to illustrate the importance our traces leave in our city and in this world.
